Lovely day

It is very quiet today.
Almost as if everything is resting.
The sky is blue and the sun is shining
and if you stand in a sheltered place
you can feel it
warm you.
The snow is melting fast now,
so the birds both on and off the water are busy
rummaging around in the grass
looking for a little something.
Or they are on the feeder
grabbing what's left
of the feast
I will replenish it the next time we go to the store...


and the ducks and geese are
floating peacefully in the sun dappled water
which is now flowing free and no longer frozen




I sense a change in the air
and the light.

I feel less antsy and gloomy today,
even with the news from Chile.
This earth is mightier than we
and there is nothing we can do to stop it from
being what it is.
A planet being a planet.
With or without us, it will do what it has done
forever,
and all we can do is get out of it's way
and hope that those who are caught,
live through it,
or find solace in eachother.

I enjoyed these contemplative words.
We have had a similar morning here--just warm enough to enjoy feeling the sun on one's face and getting a taste of what is to come, slowly, but surely.
